Definition of lace bug

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Terry:

Not to be confused with lacewings which are beneficial insects, lace bugs are garden pests that suck the juice from the foliage of many ornamental plants, especially broadleaf evergreens such as magnolia and rhododendrons. The foliage turns pallid then darker before falling off. Usually controlled with horticultural oil sprays or insecticidal soap
